How to activate polybar on ArcoLinux Openbox

You can use polybar as well in Openbox. The standard panel in ArcoLinux is tint2 but you can replace this.

We edit the autostart file in folder ~/.config/openbox.

#tint2 &
sh ~/.config/polybar/ &

These lines came in with the update of the package : arcolinux-openbox-configs-git and it is saved in your /etc/skel. You need to copy/paste it to your home folder or compare differences with meld.

Log out and back in to see polybar at work.
